Joining the conversation

I've been reading blogs for quite a while and have decided to try making time to maintain one. The thing that has drawn me in is the evolution of blogs from a personal diary format into a fascinating form of conversation with comments and two-way links through the wonders of TrackBack.

My blog design has been influenced by a number of existing blogs, including (including the little icons), megnut, and I tried making a single design that would work on both desktop computers and handhelds like the Sidekick, but it doesn't appear to be possible with a three-column layout. If browsers would just support the CSS media type for handhelds, this would be easy.

For more information about me, you might check out my software story. I won't be able to post super-often as I'm spending a lot of time on product development -- I hope I'll be able to keep this blog going and I look forward to joining the conversation!

Nice looking blog. I'll be looking forward to reading your thoughts on the evolution of the web. It sure does seem like it has evolved so much and that there is still so mch potential. It will also be good to hear from someone as involved as you are with product development at Macromedia. You guys sure have a lot of influence, and it will be nice to hear what your vision is for what the web can become.

Welcome to the blog world--not that I write one or anything. Hey, there's a lot of stuff up here already. If you can keep up the pace, great. If not, realize people are still interested in your thoughts even if they're brief.

Good luck, I'll be checking back.

I have to say though, I wish MT had the friends feature that has. I am sure there is a way to use the syndication feature to parse all the first entries of a list of journals into one page, but I don't see anyone doing it.

Welcome! Macromedia really pioneers blogging! I'd love to see this openness from any competitor of MM. Then again, they won't get the quality of feedback you guys get. A direct path to the end users... :-)

Good to see you bloggin. Now during your keynotes we can leave comments here for your feedback :)

Macromedia has really made the web a great place to be. Not only is it a company that constantly innovates but it's company culture is open to the development community and this has made it even more of a pleasure.

Glad to see you are blogging, and I like the photos down the side. I'm also glad to hear that more Macromedian's will be blogging int he future as it really has been helpful with Mesh and JD's blogs for me. It's a great part of MM's community now.
